Woldgate School and Sixth Form College

Woldgate is a school with a distinct vision for education. Our view of an outstanding school is based on shared values, where every child is known and cared for as an individual. To cultivate this, we build a supportive and caring community, where a child’s talents can grow through academic study and the opportunity to participate in the many activities, productions and visits that make Woldgate School unique. We are a school with a positive, welcoming, warm atmosphere, in which pupils take pride in their achievements and where each individual pupil achieves academically through consistently good teaching, in an environment that seeks to nurture their love of learning and challenges them to excel.

Founded in 1958, Woldgate’s original school motto celebrated the distinct education the school sought to bring. This motto is, for me, an integral part of our school life; it defines who we are as a community.

Everything you do should be worthy, of great merit, character and value.

Of great merit

The quality of being particularly good or worthy, especially deserving of praise or reward.

Of great character

The moral qualities that define an individual.

Of great value

The principles or standards of conduct we work to;

I truly believe that part of what makes this community so special is the holistic education we provide for our pupils. Our Performing Arts status, extra-curricular clubs, sporting activities and House competitions, combined with our wonderful visits programme, provide pupils with a unique opportunity to appreciate the world around them. I have long believed that the creative arts provide an exceptional platform upon which pupils can develop new skills, grow in confidence and, as people, develop qualities, in an environment where their talents are nurtured and then celebrated. The arts offer us something special, whether it be learning an instrument, acting in a play, dancing, singing or just being involved in a production as part of a company. This holistic approach to school life, for me, is integral to a good education and wonderful preparation for future life.

As we look to the future, I am absolutely committed to ensuring Woldgate School continues to develop with a clear, confident and strong identity based on shared values and with each pupil known and cared for as an individual. Our culture of collaboration and success will be matched by our determination to do the very best, both pastorally and academically, for the children in our care.

  • A School where each child is known and cared for as an individual.
  • An environment in which our pupils feel valued, safe and enjoy school.
  • A School where every child is challenged and supported to succeed academically.

Pocklington Junior School

Pocklington Junior School is proud to have a distinct vision for the education it provides to the children of Pocklington. This vision has been developed over time, working with the children, families and the local community to be the values we instil throughout our work with the children to become ambitious, respectful and committed individuals. These underpin everything we do, and through our curriculum, we aim to inspire every child to love the act of learning.

At our school, we place great emphasis on children understanding their own needs and driving themselves forwards. This attitude is quickly developed in our pupils as it permeates our school culture and approach, and is visible in classrooms with children seeking to challenge themselves further through additional or enhanced work, their collaborative approach and the pace at which they work. For more information, please do visit our school website, or visit us in person.
